MASTERCARE Concrete Polishing Services:Polished concrete is now a mainstream flooring option based on it's beauty, durability, diversity, & 'one of a kind' characteristics. The concrete polishing process consists of using diamond tooling in consecutively finer grits under a planetary grinding/polishing machine, to achieve the desired gloss of the concrete. Not only does it look spectacular, but feels spectacular under foot. During the process, densifiers are also used to further strengthen the concrete for abrasion & stain resistance, as well as guard products to seal & protect the floor upon completion.
Exposing the natural aggregates in concrete is often a desirable 'byproduct', if you will, of the concrete polishing process, & can be controlled to a certain extent. The use of stains & dyes can also further beautify your concrete to previously unimaginable heights, as well as, cutting/engraving faux grout lines, logos, & designs into the concrete, to make your floor truly 'one of a kind'.
Not all concrete is in good enough condition to polish as it is. In these cases, a self leveling overlay can be installed over the existing concrete & polished with all the attributes of polished concrete mentioned previously, as well as, broadcasting colored glass chips into the colored self leveling material to give a true terrazzo appearance. Concrete has certainly come a long way from it's days of being a drab gray material, to being a material worthy of great artistic expression!
